Pretty Little Liars: Somber Style

A funeral isn’t exactly the best place for a girl to showcase her sense of style—especially when it’s her best friend’s alleged killer who recently expired. But leave it to Aria (Luch Hale), Emily (Shay Mitchell), Hanna (Ashley Benson) and Spencer (Troian Bellisario) to somehow channel their own sartorial preferences in a pre-fab 90s girl band sort of way at Ian’s supremely awkward funeral.

Even if her hair isn’t streaked in neon pink, Aria still works her punk-tinged style with a mini-pouf dress layered under a breezily tied wrap-sweater. Her hair in a messy updo just adds to her heroine in distress look to further torment Ezra…er, Mr. Fitz (Ian Harding), while attracting a borderline flirt session with a sketchy Jason DiLaurentis (Drew Van Acker). Sporty Emily keeps it conservative with a button-front cardie over a simple high-neck tunic dress—although, the body-con fit does show off her swimming-toned physique. Spencer—in a bit of a metaphorical self statement—combines a country club-ready A-line-skirted frock with a bad girl mesh shrug. And Hanna, oh, Hanna. While at her larcenous mom’s request, she left the hot pink, body-hugging Hervé Leger number at home, the appropriateness of her final choice remains questionable. But props for bringing the drams with her revealing, draped-front cocktail dress and Kate Middleton-worthy veiled chapeau.

Here are a few ways of channeling cemetery chic, like the lying foursome, but hopefully for a more festive occasion.
